Lombard Street

San Francisco

In a city known for its incredibly steep hills, this so-called “crookedest” street in the world was designed with eight hairpin turns as a way to break the hill’s steep slope. Built in the 1920s, the solution was to lessen its drastic grade by gradually steering traffic—and pedestrians—down a series of turns. Believe it or not, it’s drivable (at 5 mph), and flowerbeds trellised up its hill make it one of the most photogenic streets in the city.
